Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Cook the rice 

    Turn the oven onto a low heat to keep food warm (around 60C). 

    Mix the GOCHUJANG PASTE with the sesame oil, sesame seeds, sugar, vinegar and 1 tbsp of water in a glass, then set aside.

    Pour 300ml of boiling water into a lidded non-stick pan, stir in the MISO STOCK and then add the rice.  Bring it back to the boil, then turn down the heat to low, cover with a lid and cook for 10-12 mins.

  • 2.

    Meanwhile, fry the mince

    Heat a little oil in a wok or pan over high heat and add the beef mince and the SOY & RED MISO SAUCE. 

    Stir fry for 5 mins to cook the mince and let it brown slightly, then tip it into a bowl and keep warm.

  • 3.

    Fry the veg

    In the same pan stir fry the carrots, spinach, beansprouts and any other vegetables (if using) for 3-4 mins.  Cook them each in turn so you can present them separately in the bowls if you like, or all together.  When cooked, put aside in a bowl and keep warm. 

    In the same pan, fry the 2 eggs, keeping the yolks soft. 

  • 4.


    Serve the rice in bowls then arrange the beef, veg and a fried egg on top, with a drizzle of the sauce on top.

Andy - Dec 06, 2019

Not a huge amount of beef for two people, tastes not bad but not as good as the other stuff we’ve tried

Mark - Nov 29, 2019

Unusual but surprisingly delicious dish! The mince was a strange but delightful taste

Marta - Nov 28, 2019

Not sure about this recipe. I won’t be getting it again.

Gaynor - Nov 28, 2019

We enjoyed the dish but I didn't enjoy cooking it! Too time consuming. Also discrepancy between quantities on the card and the recipe on the app needs correction.

Gail - Nov 28, 2019

Really enjoyed made it into more of stirfry would recommend

Anny - Nov 26, 2019

Nothing special about this. Just savoury mince really

Sarah - Nov 23, 2019

The quantities were way off and therefore the taste was insipid. The quantities on the card are different to what’s online so something odd happened there. 400g mince vs 200 g on line and way to much rice and water so very disappointing and a great waste of food.

Kay - Nov 21, 2019

Neither my husband nor I enjoyed this dish hope not to get it again. The mix of veg and egg was every unappealing and did not make for an enjoyable meal.

Vicki - Nov 19, 2019

This dish was definitely not what I’d call ‘simple’ took much longer to prep and make than anticipated and I was underwhelmed by the final product really, but it was fairly yummy

Emma - Nov 16, 2019

A disappointing lack of flavour considering the usual delicious recipes. Also seems to be enough food for 4 despite saying for 2 people

Karen - Nov 10, 2019

Not my taste but good

Becky - Nov 06, 2019

Wasn’t sure if I was going to like this, but I was really pleasantly surprised!

Anna - Nov 05, 2019

I found the sesame oil a little overpowering and would reduce the amount if I made it again.

Christine - Nov 05, 2019

Didn't particularly like this one (just personal taste) compared to all the others I've cooked would not order this again

Mona - Nov 05, 2019

Loved it

Janice - Nov 01, 2019

Nice but didn’t need the egg

Sam - Oct 31, 2019

Hi Simply Cook, We have had some lovely meals from you over the past few weeks but this one was a shocker!! It was definitely not simple to cook it took at least 40 mins and the amount of juggling of pots and pans I needed to do has left our kitchen looking like it’s been the victim of an air strike. Tasted pretty good but definitely not simple ??????

Helen - Oct 23, 2019

Tricky to pull together in the 20 minute time scale

Sacha - Oct 23, 2019

Flavours could be stronger

Lorna - Oct 22, 2019


Sally - Oct 21, 2019

Absolutely gorgeous!! One of my faves!! Can not wait to cook this dish again.

Emily - Oct 20, 2019

Took quite a long time to cook but tasty - we used quorn mince

Barry - Oct 17, 2019

Tasted great but the instructions are hopeless. You need to use your own cooking knowledge to achieve a well cooked meal

Kay - Oct 17, 2019

Not to my taste at all

Susan - Oct 16, 2019

Tasted beautiful, good amount of chili heat. Bit of a faf cooking the vegetables separately. Would have again.

Delicious, fast and filling!

Natalie - Sep 16, 2019

Loved it

Samantha - Sep 12, 2019

Just not a recipe for us.

Brian - Sep 09, 2019

Dry nice. Authentic taste. Egg necessary. Concerned about how well cooked veg might be, but no issues. Delicious sauces.

Natalie - Sep 07, 2019

Found it bland and dry. Would not order again

Jo - Sep 05, 2019

Not the simplest to cook but lovely dish

Zoe - Aug 30, 2019

We used sushi rice and should’ve followed our normal cooking procedure rather than the Simply Cook recipe- we ended up with way too much rice and it was far too sticky. The sauces were nice, but a little oily for my taste.

Ashley - Aug 27, 2019

Pretty tasty but quite time consuming. Looked fabulous though.
